A man from Corinth received his sentence today after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.
41 year old David Livingston Brown will serve four years in prison followed by eight years of supervised release.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Brown emailed child pornography to an undercover agent in 2013.
A search of his home and computers turned up hundreds of images of child porn and Brown admitted to sharing and collecting them over several years.
The investigation was conducted jointly by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit. This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
